With the new S 1000 XR, BMW Motorrad presents the successful long-distance sports car and multiple test winner in an even more convincing form. Increased engine power, optimised ergonomics, fine-tuning of the design and an even more extensive range of standard equipment are the cornerstones of the model revision.
Even more powerful in-line four-cylinder engine with flow-optimised geometry of the intake ports and now 125 kW (170 hp) of power.
The in-line four-cylinder engine of the new S 1000 XR is still based on the engine of the S 1000 RR and impresses with a particularly linear and full-bodied torque curve as well as harmonious performance characteristics for optimum driveability. Compared to the previous model, the engine output has been increased by 4 kW (5 hp) to
125 kW (170 hp) at an unchanged nominal speed of 11,000 rpm. The main reason for the increase in performance is a flow-optimized geometry of the intake ducts as well as an adapted mapping. Maximum torque is still 114 Nm at 9,250 rpm.
Optimised ergonomics thanks to a new bench seat and a new, even sportier rear section.
In the sense of even more freedom of movement – especially in super-sporty operation on country roads and race tracks – the seat of the long distance athlete has been completely redesigned. It has 10 mm more seat height (850 mm) and, by increasing the usable seat length and width, now offers significantly more room for the seat and thus even better options for varying the seating position depending on the riding condition. In high-performance country road use as well as on race tracks, the optimised ergonomics make "gymnastics" easier and thus enable the driver to have even better control over the S 1000 XR. A total of three different seat heights are available.
In terms of design, the new S 1000 XR also benefits from newly designed elements. For example, the rear area is now more dynamic with new side panels and air intakes from motorsport. In addition, the radiator grille was given a new, now grained surface structure and the "beak", which was previously black, is now painted in the respective body colour.
Extended standard equipment and new optional extras / original BMW Motorrad accessories.
The new BMW S 1000 XR now has an even more extensive appearance as standard. Headlight Pro provides additional safety when driving at night with adaptive cornering light as standard from the factory. Here, the driver benefits from better illumination of the road in curves. This also includes the DRL (Daytime Running Light) for better recognition of the vehicle during the day. From now on, the standard equipment also includes Keyless Ride and a battery with a capacity of 12 Ah instead of the previous 9 Ah. In addition, the new BMW S 1000 XR has also been equipped with USB charging as standard.
Other new features include the now also available for the USA.
E-Call, the option of equipping the S 1000 XR with the optionally available M GPS lap trigger, as well as the optional M GPS lap trigger, as well as the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the S 1000 XR, the T

"The M XR is the third M model at BMW Motorrad. On the basis of the current
S 1000 XR and S 1000 RR, the product substance of the M 1000 XR – M XR for short – has been consistently trimmed to meet the requirements of a long-distance athlete. The driving dynamics speak for themselves on the country road as well as on the race track and in long-distance use."
